CE MARK IN Medical Devices (MDD) AND Medical Devices for in Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) The CE Mark concerns those products that, affecting human beings, may involve a risk to their health. For that reason they must comply with the following requirements: s$ONOTCOMPROMISEHEALTHORCLINICALSTATUS s $ONOTCOMPROMISEUSERSHEALTHORSAFETY s$ONOTCOMPROMISETHEHEALTHORSAFETYOFTHIRDPERSONS s-INIMIZETHERISKOFERRORSOFUSETHANKSTOITSERGONOMICFEATURESANDTHEENVIRONMENTINWHICHITISINTENDEDTOBEUSED s)TTAKESINTOACCOUNTTHETECHNICALKNOWLEDGE EXPERTISE EXPERIENCE TRAINING ANDMEDICALANDPHYSICALCONDITIONSOFTHE intended users. The CE Mark implies installations, and work organisation, and systems are submitted to rigorous both internal and external quality controls. It guarantees the highest level of safety when using those products intended for the sample collection and handling of human samples, both for the patient and for the user. CE Mark guarantees that those products will be freely commercialised within the European Union. Since December the 7th 2003, the only sanitary products (MDD and IVD) that can be commercialised are those ones with CE Mark.

MEDICAL DEVICES CLASIFICATION 1. MEDICAL DEVICES (MDD)

2. MEDICAL DEVICES FOR IN VITRO DIAGNOSTIC (IVD)

According to Directive 93/42/EEC (modiďŹ ed by Directive 2007/47/EC), a MDD Medical Device is “any instrument, device, equipment, material or any other article, including software, developed to be used with human beings, alone or in association with others, with the aim of: diagnosis, prevention, tracing, treatment or relief of a disease; diagnosis, tracing, treatment, relief or compensation in case of an injury or disability; investigation, substitution or modiďŹ cation of anatomy or physiological processes; fertility control; and not designed to perform the main action expected to be obtained by immunizing, pharmaceutical or metabolical means inside or over the human bodyâ€?.

According to Directive 98/79/EC, a medical device for in vitro diagnostic is “any medical device consisting on a reagent, reactive product, calibrator, monitoring equipment, instrumentation and equipment cases, sample containers, instrument, apparatus or system designed by the manufacturer to be used in vitro to examine human samples, including blood and tissues donations; with the aim of collecting information: about a physiologic or pathologic status, or a congenital anomaly; or to determine the security and compatibility with potential receptors; or in order to supervise therapeutical measures�.

This Directive establishes 4 categories of medical devices; DELTALAB manufactures and markets temporary use product, so: Class I (sterile and non sterile) and Class IIa: s Class I (Non sterile): Low risk, invasive medical devices It includes: non sterile tongue depressors, speculums... Inspection gloves are considered both as MDD Class I and PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). All of them are self certiďŹ cation products. s Class I (sterile): Low risk, sterile, invasive medical devices Among others: sterile tongue depressors, sterile Ayre spatulas, sterile cytology brushes... They are certiďŹ ed by a NotiďŹ ed Body. s Class IIa (sterile): Moderated risk medical devices Swabs with and without medium are included in this Class. They are certiďŹ ed by a NotiďŹ ed Body. CE Mark allows swabs to be used in surgical operations as an invasive product.

They are considered low risk devices as they are not in touch with human beings and are self certiďŹ cation products. As an example, sample containers, collection tubes, capillary tubes, etc. are included.

PPE PRODUCTS (Personal Protective Equipment) According to Directive 89/686/EEC, a PPE product is “any device or system a human being is wearing or using, which protects him from one or various risks that may endanger his health and/or security�. Security glasses and protection gloves are included. Inspection gloves are considered both as MDD and PPE as they protect the user while being a low risk, invasive medical device.

PP STANDAR

The catalytic controlled polymerisation of ethylene minimises the production of compact, lateral structures resulting in a pliable but rigid material.

Ethylene is polymerised under super pressure, which produces a higher number of less compact lateral structures resulting in a material which is more flexible than HDPE.

Polypropylene properties are similar to polyethylene. A methyl group is bonded to each carbon pair, which greatly improves the thermal resistance. Polyethylene becomes brittle when in contact with oxidants for long periods of time.

Ethylene oxide is toxic and explosive.

By radiations emitted by a radioactive source

Widely used in industries to sterilise single use material. Sterilisation doses are calculated from bioburden counts.

Limitations in some applications, as some material properties may be unacceptably altered by this method.

Effects on material are cumulative, therefore gamma sterilised products are not resterilisable, by most conventional methods, after ďŹ rst use.

Beta irradiation (non radioactive particle accelerator)

High energy electron beam

Widely used in industries to sterilise single use material. Sterilisation doses are calculated from bioburden counts.

Limitation in some applications, as some material properties may be unacceptably altered by this method.

Affects on material are cumulative, therefore beta sterilised products are not resterilisable, by most conventional methods, after ďŹ rst use.

c Swabs As the two main components of a transport swab have different purposes and different ways of interaction with the patient, both have different CE treatment: 1. Swab: for microbiological sample collection. As a surgical invasive product of temporary use, is classified as CLASS IIa product in compliance with Guideline 93/42/EEC (Directive of Sanitary Products) amended by Directive 2007/47/EC. 2. Tube with transport media: container facilitator of survival and transport of biological samples prior to analysis. Classified as in vitro diagnostic IVD (according to Directive 98/79/EC).

Transport media The media used to transport the sample, has the appropriate chemical composition that maintains the bioburden levels with the minimum physiological activity, achieving thus the minimal quantitative and qualitative variation of the sample from the collection to its analysis.

Components: Each set consists in a tube and a swab, packed in a peel-pack bag (A) and sterilised by radiation. (B) Tube with transport media: Made of rigid polypropylene, suitable for food testing. (C) Polyethylene cap specially designed to close hermetically; non slippery surface when using gloves. (D) Coloured label in each tube with the following parameters printed: transport media type, sterilisation method, manufacturer name, CE mark, “single use” and “see the instructions” marks, lot number and expiry date, as well as spaces to write patient name, date, time, medical report number, source and kind of sample. The label seals the cap and the tube. (E) Swab fitted in a second cap with a shaft which ends in a tip of synthetic or organic material hardly adhered to the shaft. The cap provides a leakproof seal after sample collection.

Both the peel-pack package and the label of the tube are printed with the following information: transport media type, sterilization method, manufacturer name, CE mark, “single use” and “see the instructions” marks, lot number, and expiry date. Peel pack also includes bar code.

Amies. Sterile

AMIES media is a modification of Cary Blair media, which is at the same time a modification of Stuart media. Basically the glycerophosphate is replaced by an inorganic phosphate, and the methylene blue by pharmacological charcoal. Calcium and magnesium are also added, thus maintaining the permeability of the bacterial cell. This media assures the viability of organisms such as: Neisseria sp. Haemophilus sp. Corynebacterium sp. The presence of charcoal on the Trichomonas vaginalis media neutralises inhibitors and bacterial toxins, and improves Streptococcus pyogenes the recovery ratio of Neisseria Streptococcus pneumoniae gonorrhoeae and Vibrio cholerae Shigella flexneri Salmonella typhi Brucella abortus Enterobacterias, etc. Some microorganisms can resist on the media for up to 3 days, although the recovery of microorganisms is better if cultured in the first 24 hours. Amies transport swabs are available with or without charcoal. Swabs are sterilised by radiation. Peel-pack dimensions: 38 x 210 mm. Expiry date: 30 months after sterilisation date. case case weight quantity

1. MICROBIOLOGY Stuart swabs. Sterile

Swab: c class IIa (MDD) Tube with media: c (IVD)

The modified Stuart media allows the conservation and transportation of a large number of pathological microorganisms, such as: Neisseria gonorrhoeae Heamophilus influenzae Neisseria meningiditis Bordetella pertusis Corynebacterium diphteriae Trichomonas vaginalis Streptococcus sp. Salmonella sp. Shigellas sp. etc. The most unstable organisms will remain viable for up to 24 hours and other for several days. The media is reduced due to the presence of thioglycolate, which difficults the enzymatic reactions of the bacteria. The multiplication of the bacteria is prevented due to the lack of nitrogen in the media. Swabs are sterilised by radiation. Dimensions of the peel-pack: 38 x 210 mm. Expiry date: 30 months from sterilisation date. code

Cary Blair. Sterile

Cary Blair is another modification of Stuart media. The glycerophosphate has been substituted by inorganic phosphate since glycerophosphate is a metabolite for some bacteria, so they could grow and disgrise the pathogens amount. The methylene blue has also been removed and the pH increased to 8.4. This is a media originally developed for faecal samples but is also used successfully for anaerobic transport, such as: Neisseria gonorrhoeae Vibrio cholerae Heamophilus influenzae Neisseria meningiditis Bordetella pertusis Streptococcus pneumoniae Shigella flexneri Swabs are sterilised by radiation.

Microtitre plates, sterile Standard 96 well-plate made of crystal-clear polystyrene. Three models with different well shapes are available. In general terms, flat bottom plates are used when optical reading is required (for example, using a spectrophotometer); rounded and conical bottom plates are very useful when total recovery of the sample is required; they also offer better performance than flat bottom plates for sample separation through centrifugation. Some applications: - Diluting NEW - Serial sample preparation TERILE - Protein precipitation NON S - Hemagglutination - Conical bottom plates may be used for complement fixation - Flat bottom plates are also suitable for cell growth in suspension, and for ELISA applications, when there is no need of a pretreated plate (which enhances the antigen-antibody adhesion to the surface of the plate) Polystyrene lids are supplied separately, see code 900015. Those plates can also be covered using the sealing mat or the adhesive sealing film presented on page 60. Available in two versions: non sterile in bags of ten units, or sterilized and individually wrapped. Plate dimensions: 127.7 x 85.8 mm.

CRYOINSTANT: Porous beads for microbiological culture preservation CryoInstant is an excellent preservation system for storing microbiological culture (for example fungus on sporulation phase), consisting on 2 ml cryovials containing 25 porous beads and cryopreservative-added broth. With these vials we can: - Get a perfect freezing storage system. - Obtain up to 25 replicates from the original microorganism, to use them during many years - Ease the recovery of the stored strain streaking an inoculated bead directly onto solid media - Prevent changes and repetitive thawing / freezing of the rest of beads - Avoid the growth of ice when recovering, - Improve recovery rates of frozen cultures by adding cryopreservative to broth - Minimise the risk of cross contamination, - Save space in the freezers when storing. The external thread cryovials are made of polypropilene. Their smooth inner surface prevents from contamination. Their caps embody a silicone washer to ensure a positive leakproof seal. Tubes and caps withstand up to -190ºC. In order to ease the classification of the samples, we offer the possibility to get cryovials with caps and beads in five different colours: every code displays caps and beads from a single and same colour (excepting code 409113/6, which is an assortment), allowing a fast and easy identification of the samples, and providing a system whereby users are able to code different bacterial species, different samples, different laboratories,… And even more: with colour coded inserts (described on page 202) a further classification can be made. Cryovials are presented in carton boxes (resistant to –100ºC; dimensions: 150x150x55 mm) with 100 units; boxes are furtherly described in page 212. Each box is supplied plasticwrapped and labelled with code reference, batch, expiration date and specifying the colour of the caps and beads. code

Way of use: Take the sample from the strain with a loop (please see our loops on page 31), Inoculate the cryovial by putting the loop in contact with the broth, Close the cryovial and shake it gently in order to permeate the strain into the beads, Extract the cryopreservative-added broth with a Pasteur pipette (see our plastic pipettes on pages 191-195), 5 Close the cryovial and take it to the freezer; 6 Every time we need to reproduce the strain, we will take a bead with a loop or a forceps. 7 We will put it down on a Petri dish with culture medium, attempting to put in contact all the surface of the bead with the medium. 1 2 3 4

1. MICROBIOLOGY Surfaces sampling kits Designed according to the international standard ISO 18593, which is taken as a reference on European Directives and Rules about Microbiology of food and animal feeding stuffs - Horizontal methods for sampling techniques from surfaces (p.ex., Rule nr. 2073/2005, Directives 64/433/CEE, 71/118/CEE…). Adequate not only over surfaces but with instruments (quartering, cleaning...). Two options: with sponge (code 200396), or with swab (code 200397): Code 200396 includes: - A Whirl-Pak bag containing a sterile sampling sponge. - A disposable sterile template, supplied in a flow-pack bag. - A bottle containing 40 ml. sterile solution De-Neutralising. Way of use: - Put on a pair of sterile gloves (not included). - Open the bag containing the sponge. - Swab the carcass with the sponge through the template as described on the rule. - Return the sponge to the bag and add the De-Neutralisim solution. - Close the bag and sent it to a laboratory for testing (see how to use and close Whirl-Pak bags on page 113). Code 200397 includes: A sterile cotton swab (11 mm diameter head), with a wooden stick, individually packed in flow pack. - A disposable sterile template, supplied in flow-pack. - A bottle containing 40 ml sterile solution De-Neutralising. -

Way of use: - Put on a pair of sterile gloves (not included). - Place the template over the surface to sample. - Moisten the swab with the De-Neutralisim solution, and rub it up and down ten times over the area set by the template. - Put the swab into the bottle with the remaining solution and split it up, leaving the head inside the bottle. - Close the bottle and send it to the laboratory at 4ºC.

MICROBIOLOGY Meat or turkey carcass sampling kit Designed according to the international standard ISO 17604, which is taken as a reference on European Directives and Rules about Microbiology of food and animal feeding stuffs Carcass sampling for microbiological analysis (p.ex., Rule nr. 2073/2005, nr. 1688/2005, Decision 2006/668/CE…). Two options: with sponge (200393), or with swabs (200394): Code 200393 includes: - A bottle containing 25 ml sterile buffered peptone water. - A Whirl-Pak bag containing a sterile sampling sponge. - A disposable sterile template (sampling area of 10 x 10 cm), supplied in a flow-pack bag. Way of use: - Put on a pair of sterile gloves (not included). - Open the bag containing the sponge and then pour half of the peptone water inside in order to moisten the sponge. - Swab the carcass with the sponge through the template in those places specified on the rule (usually four). - Return the sponge to the bag and add the balance of the peptone water. - Close the bag and sent it to a lab (see how to close Whirl-Pak bags on page 113). Code 200394 includes: - A sterile bottle containing 10 ml buffered peptone water. - Two sterile cotton swabs (11 mm diameter head), with a wooden stick, individually packed in flow pack. - A disposable sterile template, supplied in a flow-pack bag. Way of use: - Put on a pair of sterile gloves (not included). - Place the template over the area of the carcass to sample. - Moisten the swab with the peptone water, and rub it over the surface set by the template (100 cm2). - Put the swab into the bottle with the remaining peptone water and split the stick up, leaving the head inside the bottle. - Rub the dry swab over the same area, put it on the bottle with the first swab, and split the stick up, leaving the head inside the bottle. - Close the bottle and send it to a lab inside a secondary container (see page 118). The template is available separately (code 200393P). Please, ask for our technical data sheet

1. MICROBIOLOGY e.coli

coliforme

non enteric bacteria

déhydrated culture medium

Water control: absence/presence of Coliforms (E. Coli) 125 ml bottle, made of PET, with white ribbed tamper evident cap made of PP. It contains dehydrated culture medium in order to detect the presence of coliforms in human consumption, industrial or leisure water (pools,…). Sterile by radiation. It allows the water testing directly on a bottle. The culture medium is based on chromogenic substrates, which make possible the coliform reading; and complemented with fluorogenic substrates, which presumptively identify the presence of E. Coli. Process: 1. A sample of water shall be taken in a sterile bottle, without additives, or with a neutralising (like thiosulfate) in case of chlorinated water. 2. A part of the sample (100 ml) is to the bottle containing the dehydrated culture medium and then shake gently until dissolved. 3. Incubate for 24 hours at 37ºC. 4. After incubation, the colour will reveal the results: A Yellow: the sample is negative for non enteric bacteria, total coliforms and E. Coli. B Muddy yellow: the sample is positive for enteric bacteria (not coliforms). C Turquoise blue: the presence of total coliforms is confirmed. 5. To discard escherichia place the sample under a UV light in a dark environment; if the sample gets fluorescent it contains E.coli; if there is not fluorescency, then it is another coliform, not E. coli. Every case includes two boxes with ten bottles each.

2. MOLECULAR BIOLOGY Real Time PCR Polimerase Chain Reaction is one of the most common techniques in every lab where Molecular Biology is being used. Its applications comprise Diagnostics, Genetic and Prenatal testing, Tissue Typing, Forensics, Pharmacological evaluation, among others. One of the most useful PCR techniques is the Real Time PCR, also known as Quantitative PCR (QPCR). Its main advantage in front of standard PCR is that it saves time as the quantiďŹ cation is being held during DNA ampliďŹ cation. 7HILESTANDARD0#2NEEDSAQUANTIFYINGPROCESSAFTER$.!AMPLIlCATION QPCR gives results in real time. PCR standard consumables are mainly made of transparent polypropylene. After some years of experience, laboratory technicians have found that crosstalking among transparent wells may affect the real time quantiďŹ cation. Opaque white wells and tubes have proved to avoid this well-to-well crosstalking, thus ensuring an exact and reliable quantiďŹ cation. The following pages include the newest innovations in this brand new area; like bi-mould technologies, which allow the manufacture of an opaque tube attached to an optically clear cap. White well technology is available in both strips of tubes or also 96 well plates.

3. HAEMATOLOGY AND BIOCHEMISTRY Serum tubes with clot accelerator and gel serum separator,

c (IVD)

Made of a clear polypropylene, supplied capped and labelled with an inert polyethylene cap. The tubes are designed and processed to permit a fast serum and blood clot separation. Each tube contains a special inert additive which accelerates the coagulation, and the result is a fast clot retraction. The coagulation speed is, doubtlessly, much higher than the obtained with the glass tubes or the other existing tubes on the market. The inert gel is located, after centrifugation, between the clot and the obtained serum and it works as a totally watertight barrier. The ergonomic features of the cap design results in a very reliable and easy-to-use cap. On the label of each tube the lot number, expiry date and volume are printed. Supplied in plastic racks. We strongly recommend its usage for biochemistry, routine tests, special biochemistry, markers, hormones, immunology (tube without anticoagulants).

Serum volume increased: The volume obtained is higher than the obtained with granules tubes or glass tubes, achieving an advantage around 20%. The gel serum separator tube is the preferred option when analysis requires maximum serum yield from the blood sample.

3. HAEMATOLOGY AND BIOCHEMISTRY Serum tubes with clot accelerator and granule serum separator

c (IVD)

Made of a clear polypropylene, supplied capped and labeled with an inert polyethylene cap. The tubes are designed and processed to permit a fast serum and blood clot separation. Each tube contains a special inert additive which accelerates the coagulation, and the result is a fast clot retraction. The coagulation speed is much higher than the obtained with the glass tubes or the other existing tubes on the market. The inert granules are rounded to avoid cellular lesions during centrifugation and minimize the risk of haemolysis. These granules are located between the clot and the separated serum working as a retaining wall. It assures a comfortable pipette action or serum decanting.(It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a watertight barrier). The ergonomic features of the cap design results in a very reliable and easy-to-use cap. On the label of each tube the lot number, expiry date and volume are printed. Supplied in plastic racks.

Serum glucose serotub

Made of a clear polypropylene, supplied capped and labeled with an inert polyethylene cap. To permit a fast serum separation of the blood clot, the tubes have an inert additive inside which speeds up the coagulation. This accelerator allows a mixture with the blood almost immediate and avoids the unnecessary sample dilution. The coagulation speed is much higher than the obtained with the glass tubes or the other existing tubes on the market. The inert granules are rounded to avoid erythrocytes lesions during centrifugation and minimize the risk of haemolysis. These granules are located between the clot and the separated serum working as a retaining wall. It assures a comfortable pipette action or serum decanting. (It isn’t a watertight barrier). Inside the tube there is also a little amount of a glucose preservative, lithium iodoacetat, which maintains the sample stable up to 6 days and allows to make most of the biochemical measurements with an only tube (the exceptions are CPK and Lithium); so it’s possible to save one of the two tubes used normally to determine routine tests and glucose respectively. With the ergonomic features of the cap the design achieves a high reliability without avoiding the main characteristic of the cap: it’s very easy to use. On the label of each tube the lot number, expiry date and volume are printed. Presentation: packed in black bags in order to maintain them out of the light because the iodum is photosensitive. Keep these tubes at a temperature bellow 35 ºC. Supplied in plastic racks.

3. HAEMATOLOGY AND BIOCHEMISTRY Spectrophotometer cuvettes Disposable cuvettes suitable for most of the open spectrophotometers. Homogeneous measures, specially of the surface crossed by the light beam, assuring an optimum transmission level on the whole visible spectral. The material used avoids any possible measurement interference. Due to the strict quality control during the manufacture process, a high reliability is assured. The maximum absorption variations are +/- 1 %. Light beam width: for 10 mm. The two sides not crossed by the light beam are ribbed to an easy identiďŹ cation of the cuvette position inside the spectrophotometer measurement chamber, resulting in an easy positioning and removal.

5. MICROSCOPY AND STAINING STAR FROST® ADHESIVE slides Standard size: 26 x 76 mm. Thickness: 1mm. Made in Germany. High definition, pre-washed glass. Hydrofophobic. No stain residues, no proteins in the surface, DNAse, RNAse free. Feature a white, 20 mm marking area. This special printed area is resistant to all common chemicals used in the laboratories, and may be marked with pencil, ballpoint pen, marker and different laboratory-printers (e.g. Leica XPS). Thanks to the single side printing the user always knows the best surface to be used. Star Frost® Adhesive slides are treated with silane-coating, which ensures cell-and-tissue-adhesion and supports the forming of covalent bonds between the tissue and the glass surface through electrostatic attraction. So tissue and cell substrates stick rapidly on the surface without using further adhesives or protein coating media, saving costs and time. This adhesive coating is restricted to the top surface and therefore to the usable area only. As the underside is untreated, the slides do not tend to stick when stacked or transported as with other competitive products. StarFrost® Adhesive slides do not show striae and disturbing background staining such as the blue or red background obtained with Haematoxylin and Eosin-staining of tissues on Albumin coated glass, or the brown background obtained during the Immunoperoxidase or In-situ-DNS-Hybridisation process. They are ideal for molecular-hybridization, as being DNASe and RNAse there is no need of washing them with chromic-acid.

Staining system Slide staining system compound of a range of jars, and a 12 slides staining rack. Different jar colours allow the user to distinguish each stage of the staining process. Jar and rack made of autoclavable acetal polymer, resistant to staining agents as alcohol, xylene … (not phenol). The jar embodies a hinged lid which allows storing the jar with the content. Reagent capacity: 80 ml. Jars can be loosely joined to each other laterally (picture 1). The rack features a handle in the hinged lid, and can be placed up when handled out of the jar. Since the slides are placed vertically in the rack, their writing area will not be stained, allowing their removal without the use of forceps (picture 2). Rack and jar withstand from -170 and +121ºC. Jar dimensions: 64 x 76 x 92 mm. Rack dimensions: 60 x 64 x 97 mm. code

NEW

Multipurpose container for mailing, staining or storing microscope slides. Tube made of polypropylene, pink screw cap made of high density polyethylene. It holds up to 4 standard slides vertically. It incorporates a tamper evident leakproof screw cap ensuring your peace of mind during transport or storage situations where someone might have manipulated your slides without your prior knowledge. Can also be used without the tamperproof locking mechanism. For color coding purposes, use an insert (range 409111A, see Chapter 7. Tubes and microtubes) that may be inserted on top of closure. The container is designed for maximum stability on a bench top while having an internal volume of only 12 ml. Being transparent helps the user to notice if there are slides in it, an advantage in front of the popular white transport tubes. Dimensions: 35 x 87 mm. code

6. SAMPLING AND TRANSPORT

Isothermal bags Isothermal bags for the transport of biological samples, manufactured from PVC, PE and polyurethane (foam). The isothermal bags have two functions: keeping the temperature of samples for 6 hours while being transported, whatever the climatic CONDITIONSPROTECTINGTHESAMPLESANDTHEIRCONTENTS!VAILABLEINGREEN Description: for added security, isothermal bags feature three different locks: by velcro (excepting 6 l model), by zip fastener and by a coded padlock. Bags include the following elements: - an inner pocket designed to hold the cold packs, - a transparent outer pocket, at the front of the bag, for laboratory identiďŹ cation, - a transparent pocket, over the top of the bag, to insert documents. - Two cold packs (except 900073 which incorporates only 1) consisting of HDPE packs ďŹ lled with a non toxic gel. Before use, place cold packs in the freezer and keep at 20ÂşC/-24ÂşC for 24 hours. Quality features: - Bags manufactured from sturdy and shockproof materials. - Stand out from other isothermal bags existing on the market for their lightness and convenience. - Offer a total security seal thanks to padlock. - Space-saving and supplied folded in to reduce volume by 50 %. - To clean, simply use standard detergents. - Corners are rounded and reinforced by a double seam. - Handles are sewn all around the bag for increased strength. - Isothermal bags are traditionally manufactured (non-automated production), and each product undergoes rigid quality controls. code
